Gift-wrapped poop sends bomb squad to Steven Mnuchin's Bel Air mansion

The package, discovered at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at 965 Bel Air Road, was a box filled with manure, Sgt. R. Briggs of the LAPD West Los Angeles Station said.

Mnuchin became the 77 secretary of the U.S. Treasury in February, when the U.S. Senate confirmed his appointment by President Trump. No evacuations were ordered and the scene was cleared. Aerial footage from KNBC showed officers investigating a large box in wrapping paper, then dumping a large amount of what they later identified as the manure and opening the card that was included inside.

The package also included a Christmas card with negative comments about President Donald Trump and the new US tax law signed by Trump last week.

A suspicious package has been tracked outside the home of US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in California.

In any case, the Times says a few different members disclosed to them they "didn't review" the President utilizing those words. Trump had a ready-made excuse for nearly all the countries his controversial immigration policy targeted.

The package label said the givers were "The American People".

Before being sworn in as part of the Trump Administration in February, Mnuchin worked as the finance chairman for Donald Trump's campaign for president.

Mnuchin was not in Los Angeles at the time of the incident, according to a law enforcement source. He has had a career in banking and finance, and previously worked for Goldman Sachs.
